Oribe Shine Supershine Moisturizing Cream

Longtime readers know that I used to go through gallons of leave-in goop until I switched my conditioner and hair mask to products with high shea butter content. That made all the difference and now I only need a little extra moisturizer on the ends and/or when I use a flat iron. A great side effect of goo-detox is no limp hair days and no issues with product residue that takes away the shine and makes my scalp itch like crazy.

I'm more selective now about the stuff I do use. It has to be effective in small amounts and to smell good. I was already familiar with Oribe Signature shampoo and conditioner. They are excellent and I use the shampoo quite often (the conditioner only comes in a 6.8 tube which lasts about two weeks and costs twice as much as the L'Occitane conditioner that comes in the same size), so I decided to try Oribe Shine Supershine Moisturizing Cream, a leave-in conditioner.

Right now it's my favorite product in this category (but I'm notoriously fickle about this kind of stuff). It's the perfect weight for this time of the year- gives just the right amount of moisture but not too greasy/heavy. The shine and smoothness are just as promised, and while I haven't straightened my hair recently, I have a feeling it would be a great help in that department. The scent is the same as the other Oribe products I've tried- very much like a flat version of Uncle Serge's Nuit de Cellophane. And that's a very good thing.

Bottom line: Next on my hair agenda is trying their moisture hair musk.

Oribe Shine Supershine Moisturizing Cream ($49) is available from select salons, top department stores and I bought mine at Bergdorf Goodman.


  1. I just tried the new Bumble & bumble Quenching Complex (leave in conditioner/treatment) and it's amazing-better than anything I've ever tried and I'm a true product junkie. Worth a look.

  2. oribe is my favorite :D try the shampoo/conditioner for brilliance & shine along with supershine and you'll be soooooo smooth & shiny

  3. I use the Oribe Blow Out mist and it is amazing. It adds volumn to fine,thin hair and cuts the drying time in half.

    Love it!

  4. I'm a little late to this conversation but after having been given a sample of Bumble and Bumble Shampoo and Conditioner (the Thickener variety) yesterday, I went back today and bought them! I have fine hair ... plenty of it but it is fine and I thought, dry. But noooo, it needed thickening!!!! I'll try the Quenching Complex, too (thanks for recommendation, Jessi) but if not thanks, Gaia, for the article about Oribe! I knew if I searched B&B on your site, you'd have just the added info I would need! Thanks so much!
